The next PM

Warsaw Business Journal

Yesterday, Jan Rokita, a leader of the Civic Platform (PO), during a meeting organized by the American Chamber of Commerce in Warsaw, described his future economic policies if he become prime minister.

He described himself as a liberal politician who strongly supports free market solutions and stated his government would make tackling the problems of public finance its top priority. Rokita would like to reform state expenditures mainly through reducing public spending in all areas except for health care. Rokita strongly advocated the introduction of a flat tax rate, however, he added the changes would have to be introduced gradually, with income taxes first being changed, followed by changes to VAT. Among the other priorities he mentioned were the reform of the judicial system. Rokita added he is against the appreciation of the złoty and will support pegging the exchange rate of the złoty to the euro.
